Height is a genetically determined factor and we can not change it by drugs.

The only possible option in your case is complex orthopedic procedure like illozarrow surgery, which is not indicated now.

Consult an orthopedician for expert opinion.

Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
